Wheel bearings

Question Description

I’m trying to learn for my class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

I would like to know if I could attempt to change the wheel bearings on my 2003 jeep liberty 4wheel drive 3.8 litre. I don't have a bearing puller or a press  is this something I would need, a friend did his jeep Cherokee without any of those tools and it looked pretty easy. Thanks for your help.

Final Answer

It would be safer to replace the half shafts insteaad of the bearing itself. Cheaper, faster, no special tools needed, however, you would need some basic knowledge which you seem to possess.
